New Player Info

Who can play Hurling with the Nashville G.A.C.? 
We welcome men and women over the age of 18. While we hope to add youth divisions eventually, our current efforts are directed towards adults.
If you are interested in helping develop youth programs, please contact us. We’d love to talk: nashvillegac@gmail.com
What do I need to get started?
Wear proper athletic apparel. If you have a pair of cleats (soccer boots are perfect) bring those, but sneakers or running shoes will be ok to start.

We have a few hurleys on hand for folks to try out, but once you’re committed to playing (and we know you will be once you give it a try), you’ll want to buy your own. Here are some resources:Made in America by our friends at J. O’ Coigligh and Sons: http://americanhurling.com/

Helmets with face shields are required for play; we’ll have some on hand for new players, but you’ll want to invest in one if you decide to play. While an ice hockey or Lacrosse helmet will work, consider investing in a hurling helmet. They are available online from:
